Extra Curricular Information

Moral of my story: Apply. Maybe you won't get in, but maybe you will :) All it takes is for one (top ten) school to say YES!

BTW, some may be wondering - I'm not considered a URM but I am from a different country (no not an international student). I speak several languages, have two undergrad degrees, am published, several internships, LOTS of other stuff....but, I don't take standardized tests well.. had the same problem with SATs. As you can see from my gpa, my SAT score did not predict my success.

Additional info & updates

sent: date submitted via lsac
recieved: date school notified me that they received my ap
complete: date notified that ap complete

UofMD: did not receive notification of app receipt - used online status check.

Called Northwestern b/c have not received my access code, were SUPER nice, are resending the code, said that my app is not complete yet
Called UF b/c have not heard anything from them, said tht they have my file but have not received my LSDAS report, called LSAC b/c been over 2 weeks since sent the report, LSAC said call UF back and ask to re-request report, I said yeah right (b/c the schools do not want to bothered) but did call back, girl said takes about 2 - 3 weeks for them to get the report

11/10/05: called UofIowa to ask about ISIS - told them that my admin profile is blank - the girl said that it doesn't show much of anything and said would check my status for me. She was really nice - found my stuff and said file is complete. She said that she was told would start reviewing 1st of dec.
Called UF again b/c the LSDAS report was sent to them on the 14th of Oct and last week they told me did not receive it yet. Today was over 4 weeks - girl looked up the file and said is complete. Thank goodness b/c I was really starting to worry...

how weird.. I called UofI today and got a letter later stating that my file was complete. Kinda feel bad wasting their time :(

11/16/05: OMG North Carolina finally requested my LSADS report! :) Yay, they're going to start reviewing apps :)

11/21/05: have not heard from Notre Dame about whether or not app is complete - called them today, said will e-mail me with status; nice lady, has an accent - British?

12/2/05: Woohoo - got an e-mail from Carolina saying my app is complete.

OMG two great things in one day! I'm in at UF!! Got a large white envelope that did not look official at all but come to find out... it was! Letter dated 11-30-05

12/16/05: received deferral from Penn. Not surprising and expected :) Working on getting all the additional info they want - trying to get it in before the end of the year.

12/21/05: received e-mail from Duke advising that I was defered. They did not request additional information - just said they have not been able to make a decision yet.

12/22/05: received an acceptance packet in the mail from Stetson.

2/3/06: e-mail for UofHouston stating that I've been admitted and formal letter is in the mail. WooHoo!

2/6/06: got letter from yale dated 2/2. No big surprise. I thought I would be upset, but I'm really not... go figure :)~

2/7/06: withdrew from Stetson and Iowa today. Stetson by form they mailed. Iowa by e-mail.

2/25/06: g0t letter about money plus out of state fee waiver from UH

2/28/06: thank god I got rejected from Notre Dame (no pun intended and no offense at all)... after doing more research about their teaching philosophy, I was regretting that I applied... so much so that I withrdrew my app. I guess it takes them a while to process paperwork? :)

3/4/06: funny... I just finally withdrew my application the other day and today I get a waitlist letter... weird.

3/8/06: holyshit people! I got in to Michican!! Got the letter today with a nice blue folder thingy. After all the rections I was starting to wonder....

I see you have received your first decision. Congrats on fsu. I hope I have the same result as you. Anyways, how are you ranking the schools or fsu (if you care to mention). bests with the rest the decisions.

Congrats as well
Monday, November 07 2005 at 07:00 PM

I am definitely set on UF, but, I was also pleasantly surprised by FSU!

Saturday, August 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

You have some pretty elite schools for your numbers. Do you have special EC's?

Re: iam000777
Monday, October 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

iam - you have great numbers, I'm sure you'll get into UF. I was surprised by FSU too. I think it's great that they're so on top of everything!

Re: wow
Monday, October 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

Yeah - I have a couple of things that make me stand out... I 'may' list them when I start hearing from schools.

Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

How'd you find out you were complete there? I haven't heard a thing since the October postcard saying they received my app. Did you get an e-mail, p/c, phone call, carrier pigeon message...?

Re; Indiana
Monday, October 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

They were missing something from my app and they e-mailed me. A week after I sent them the info I e-mailed the lady who contacted me to make sure they had everything finished. She replied and said I was complete. I checked your the date on your profile - I would call them or e-mail them. I'm sure you're fine though because they would have contacted you if they were missing something :)

Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

for your UF acceptance. I applied early October, but have not heard anything yet.

UF letter
Tuesday, February 15 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on the UF acceptance! Did that letter go to your permanent address or current address?

Monday, October 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

Nope, no scholarship offers. They sent a separate form for the scholarships that needed to be filled out.

Wednesday, October 05 2005 at 08:00 PM

i got an email. my mail was sent to my school address. but i got an email from duke. getting deferred obviously isn't preferred, but it's better than getting rejected.

Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Indiana! They WL'd me; which is just as well. I will send in my withdrawal next week. Were you ED for Michigan too?

Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

Before you received the email do remember if your status checker changed from "File in Review" to "Decision Mailed." And Congratulations.

Wednesday, February 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats!! What is the DATE of the actual acceptance for that school? I was under the impression that they were not sending out any futher acceptances after the massive waitlist went up on the 3rd. But hey, if you made it in after that, even further congratulations!

Hi reynolda - I posted a reply on your account.

Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

WELL DONE on UM! You go girl! I assume that's where you'll end up??

Monday, October 24 2005 at 08:00 PM

You really lived up to your moniker with UM. Good luck!

Re: Wow
Monday, October 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

Yes, I agree. Now that I'm here and I've seen the school for myself... holyshit! :)~
